What is a Virtual Assistant?
Dictionary.com definition: A person, as a freelance office assistant, that works remotely in an administrative role.
A VA is an independent contractor that works remotely, usually in their own home office or the preferred location.
Why a VA over an employee?
There are many benefits in hiring a VA over an employee. There's no sick leave, annual leave, or superannuation to pay for, you don't have to provide a work-space or equipment. No ongoing costs, just the service you are paying for. As a result, it can be much more cost-effective to outsource to a Virtual Assistant than having an employee.
